color riot!

As promised, today I have more Amy Tangerine Sketchbook, but this time in a -- shall we say -- less minimal kind of way!

I have come to realize that I am the kind of photography nerd who will pull into  a parking lot somewhat randomly to take photos of a Ferris Wheel. That's what's documented here -- not a day at the fair, nothing about odd carnies or hot-pants-wearing fashion victims. Just a Ferris Wheel. Because it looked cool against the fading daylight.

I was super-happy to get my paws on the Stepping Stone alphabet stamps there in the "photo" part of the title (Hero Arts/Studio Calico) -- the set includes an outline and a solid image of each letter, making colorful words ever so easy. The hex stamp is Studio Calico, too (from a kit), and the tapes are from various sources, but almost everything else is Amy Tangerine. I (ME! Really!) fussy-cut both the stamped hexagons and the cameras (which are highlighted with an inkpad-blender pen combo). I think I might go back and add one more hexagon, right at the bottom edge. Hmm. Check out the top photo and tell me if you agree, eh? Thanks.

A little fabric-sticker date-stamping, a little doily-stamping-and-coloring, and I called it good. Man, but do I love color. If you can believe it, this layout is even brighter in real life! And as always, almost everything you see here is available at Scrappy Chic for local folks and the interwebs for the rest of y'alls.

Shall we have a card next time? Yes, I think we shall. Enjoy life until then!

Wow! Colouring! Fussy-cutting! Go, Ang! This is awesome -- really pops at you with all the colour and elements. (And I say go for the one last hexagon, I think it might be a good balance...)

I really like the blue/pink color combo. And I also need to get my paws on that stamp set!
